National Public Radio aired a piece earlier this week exploring the parallels and differences between Alabama’s Dauphin Island and Isle Derniere (a Louisiana island that was a resort town in the 1800s, but was slowly abandoned in the wake of an 1856 hurricane).

The story raises that age-old question: is retreat sometimes the only answer? What do you think? Let us hear in the comments.

You can listen to (or read) the story on NPR’s website.
